Are computer warranties worth it?

Opt For a Warranty

Depending on the brand of computer you purchase, and the vendor who is selling the computer, most desktops will come with a one to three year warranty. If a desktop you would like to purchase does not include a warranty, spend the extra money to buy at least a three-year warranty. This three-year warranty will usually include “parts and labor”, which means if something goes wrong with your computer within the next three years, the store will be responsible for doing the technical work and replacing the parts for you. It is advised that you read the fine print and find out what exactly is covered under your warranty, such as hardware malfunctions and not damage caused by you.
